Re: Moff ahead of Brock

Is Moffat going to be racing Brutes this year? Or is it just for the F1 event?

Re: Moff ahead of Brock

I think both Jims are in it for the year
should be quite some Marketing coup if they handle it right.
I also think i read somewhere that Moff might be getting some assistance from DJR
Which Means DJR this year has tie ins with ford drivers Johnson, Seton and Moffat

Kudos to BoyBrock for making up a few places there. BIg RAVE to MiniMoff for finishing his first race in a v8 powered car in the top 5... well done!! Practiced 10th, qualified 7th, raced 5th!

Remembering BoyBrock has raced Future Tourers and maybe other v8 powered cars before, Im pretty sure this is Moffats 1st v8 racer.

Re: Moff ahead of Brock

James Moffat has joined Glenn Seton at Dick Johnson Racing (DJR) bringing together three of Australian motorsport's greatest names.

Moffat is the son of four time Australian Touring car and four times Bathurst champion Allan Moffat.

Moffat Junior, who signed a four year deal to drive with DJR, starts his DJR association this weekend driving a Trend Windows backed V8 Ute at the Grand Prix.

"I'm absolutely over the moon, it's a privilege to be joining Dick Johnson Racing," James Moffat said.

"We initially got together at Symmons Plains last year; I had a chat to Dick and Steve Chalker about the possibility of having a run in one of the cars this year, which they thought was do-able.

"Then the team had a test in November last year and they invited me for a drive, which was very unexpected.

"It's been a dream of mine to drive a V8 Supercar, so to finally get the opportunity was pretty unreal, it was an awesome experience.

"I want to perform well this year in the Utes and do my best in testing for the team.

"The aim is the Development Series next year if it can be done and then my dream is a career as a full-time Championship driver, but I'm just starting out so let's just take one step at a time."

DJR General Manager Steve Chalker is impressed with Moffat and believes that he has the talent to go far as a driver.

"DJR kept a close eye on James during last year's Lotus Trophy races and he certainly showed a lot of potential," Chalker said.

"James did a good job steering a V8 Supercar during last year's final test, he drove smartly and didn't do anything silly, which again impressed us.

"He's got a year in the V8 BRute series and the odd test day to give him some miles.

"If he can come to grips with a V8 and show some resolve then he could find himself with a Development Series drive next year.

"We won't put any pressure on James, he needs to progress at his own pace.
When the time is right we'll steer him in the right direction."

Chalker is also quick to point out that James Moffat will have the opportunity to learn from four of the sports greats.

"Dick Johnson will give a lot of good tips to James to help him develop his racing career," Chalker said.

"For variety, James also gets to take advice from Glenn Seton, Allan Grice, who runs his Ute team, and his father of course, Allan Moffat.

"That's advice from racing superstars that have eleven national championships between them and nine Bathursts!

"I can think of many young drivers that would give an arm and a leg have that sort of experience guiding them through."

Re: Moff ahead of Brock

Good to see another Moffat in a Ford, and good on DJR for backing him. It would be great to see him in the V8 SC's in a few years.
I don't think Brockys son is ever going to get very far though, he's had a few opportunities but seems to have missed his dads abilities. Maybe he needs a polarizer to create a positive energy flow for his career.
